Mediterranean Conference Centre
The 16th-century building, now the Mediterranean Conference Centre, has long been one of Valletta’s most remarkable landmarks. Located towards the tip of the Valletta peninsula, the MCC stands for distinction with magnificent views across the Grand Harbour.
The sheer size and scale of the building coupled with its conversion into a modern conference centre in 1979 make the MCC such an impressive architectural feat today. The sensitive and innovative restoration won international acclaim with the coveted ‘Europa Nostra’ Award for its successful blending of the fine old architecture with modern technology.
In addition to conferences, it offers one of the finest venues in the Mediterranean for a range of events including product launches, exhibitions, conventions, banquets and theatrical performances.
The Mediterranean Conference Centre is a rare example in the region of a heritage building functioning to the exacting demands of the 21st century. It is one of Europe’s largest conference centres within a historical setting.
The Centre boasts of impressive spaces, such as the main auditorium, Republic Hall, seating 1,400 in theatre style, the elegant and unique La Valette Hall that offers an imposing banqueting venue for up to 900, as well as a host of individually-styled smaller halls suited for receptions and more modest-scale conferences and seminars.
In total, the Centre offers an area of over 8,000 square meters.
